[Official] Corsair Graphite Club [780T/760T/730T/600T/380T/230T] - Page 1070

post #10691 of 18111
Hey guys!

I've just joined the 600T club and I have some doubts for when I build my rig:

Asus Sabertooth z77
Corsair H100i
Corsair 600T

I have 1 Bitfenix 200mm front fan for intake, a Corsair AF120 in the back for exhaust and a couple of Corsair SP120 for the H100i. My problem is that I don't know in which direction should be the fans blowing for an optimal airflow inside the case.

My 2 options are:

1. keep the rest of the fans as I posted before and put the h100i fans blowing air into the case

2. turn the rear AF120 as an intake and put the h100i fans as an exhaust (blowing air out of the case).

My main concerns are the temperatures of all the components (GPU/CPU/RAM...) and the amount of dust that can be stored in the case.

Since here I found a lot of experts configuring this case I thought somebody could help me a lil bit!thanks in advance!

I believe that if you put the h100i fans into intake you get better temps but ofcourse more dust. I do believe that it's only 2/3 °C more for outtake, though this depends on your system temperature and room temp.

The liquid fusion res imho is "the res", ridiculously expensive but sexy xD

Yeah reservoirs and pumps are pretty easy to set up no issues with that what so ever, the only thing that i have no clue on what to get is fittings and some good tubing. You could of course buy a watercooling kit where everything you need is included but that just ain't half as cool as having the things you really want.

But yeah i guess the biggest concern would be the price of custom watercooling, since the Liquid Fusion costs about 105$ for the 250mm one that is already a full H100 with fans right there. A radiator costs proably around 80-100$ depending on the size of course. A waterblock costs probably around 60-80$, a good pump probably around 100$, fittings, tubing and coolant is of course not so bad probably around 50$ well depending if it's just standard or home made bent acrylic (probably the best looking) and if you want to also watercool your GPU(s) it's at least 100$ for a TITAN waterblock which i would need.

So around 500$~ that's quite a sum of money just to get cooler temperatures, though of course the biggest reason is because it looks so much nicer, it's not really that much better than a closed loop watercooler like the H100 of course again depending on the size of the radiator and reservoir + pump. But temperatures ain't too different at all. So if it's worth an extra 400 dollars or so, not at the moment for me at least. Not only that i also have to pay around 25% more for all of that because i don't live in America thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

I have mine set as exhaust. I get pretty good temps. Between 3 and 8C delta across all cores on idle, and depending on what game I am playing I get between 20 and 30C delta on load. Now for stresstesting... that can get me close to 40C delta, which I won't even try right now since my room is at a scorching 31C... All I need is a call from the technician to arrange a day to install an AC unit on my room biggrin.gif

The problem with watercooling for the first time (at least what I think) is getting everything needed in one go. Mostly because of the amount of tubing needed and the fittings, compression, 90 deg angle, 45 deg angle, yadda yadda, there's always a drawback. rolleyes.gif Then you have to go back to the store and get more tubing or different fittings lol


Yep... the price is the biggest reason I still am yet to have a custom loop. I live in Portugal, and it's hard to get decent watercooling gear, at least at good prices, but slowly I notice that we're getting more variety than a couple years ago. I gathered up a few places a few days ago and tried to build the best bang for buck full GPUs+CPU loop... I couldn't get any shorter than €400, with universal GPU blocks... If picked full cover, it would easily make that nearly hit the €500 mark...



You could order from other countries in Europe, or even EKWB... they are from Slovenia so no import taxes, they sell slightly more expensive than on a local store (at least here).

Yeah i would have to give about 500-600€ for a XSPC RayStorm, EK - FC Titan SE, a 360mm radiator (don't know if i even want to have that size since i have to remove the drive bay + the hdd racks) a Swiftech MCP655 (don't know yet) a FrozenQ Liquid Fusion and of course the rest of the mandatory accessories.

Luckily though i have a shop in Denmark where i can buy all that. Just that it costs around 550€ which is definitely a whopping price for just watercooling, and just around 110€ for a H100i with fans, so yeah that's quite insane. 550€ is almost 1/3 of the price i payed for the whole rig, well excluding monitor and peripherals.

Thanks for ur answer! have you configured your rear fan as intake or exhaust? and how are the GPU temperatures with your configuration? Thanks in advance!

No problem: thumb.gif

My GPU temps....

Well, on idle, top runs at roughly 9C delta, bottom at 6C delta.

On load, also depending on which game, but the most demanding game I currently have is Skyrim, running @ 2560x1080 on ultra settings (bar shadows) and ENB... They can get really hot, at roughly ~40C delta.

My rear fan is set as exhaust, though, I am considering replacing that fan with an AF120 Performance, as the stock fan only runs at 1200ish RPM and though quiet, it doesn't move that much air. Front 200mm fan is set to intake too. No top drive cage.

The problem with watercooling for the first time (at least what I think) is getting everything needed in one go. Mostly because of the amount of tubing needed and the fittings, compression, 90 deg angle, 45 deg angle, yadda yadda, there's always a drawback. rolleyes.gif Then you have to go back to the store and get more tubing or different fittings lol


Yep... the price is the biggest reason I still am yet to have a custom loop. I live in Portugal, and it's hard to get decent watercooling gear, at least at good prices, but slowly I notice that we're getting more variety than a couple years ago. I gathered up a few places a few days ago and tried to build the best bang for buck full GPUs+CPU loop... I couldn't get any shorter than €400, with universal GPU blocks... If picked full cover, it would easily make that nearly hit the €500 mark...



You could order from other countries in Europe, or even EKWB... they are from Slovenia so no import taxes, they sell slightly more expensive than on a local store (at least here).

I had that problem with the fittings. I made my order and didn't take certain things into account like extra extenders, causing me to make another order and leaving me with extra fittings. I just had a small leak today due to not tightening the fitting enough. Fortunately it wasn't bad and the rig suffered no damage. But man when people said it was expensive to water cool boy were they right. I could have easily bought two 780's for the cost of my loop which includes the cost of the tools I had to buy to mod my case.

My rear fan is set as exhaust, though, I am considering replacing that fan with an AF120 Performance, as the stock fan only runs at 1200ish RPM and though quiet, it doesn't move that much air. Front 200mm fan is set to intake too. No top drive cage.

2560x1080 i have never heard of that resolution, i have 2560x1440 which is 16:9 aspect ratio. And 16:10 is 2560x1600. Oh well not bad temps, my 780 idles at around 37C and load is about 80 at max, so 43C delta, not bad really since it's not dual fan, really would love having the MSI Lightning or Twin Frozr, though you couldn't get them when they were first released oh well. My CPU idles at around 30C and 75 on prime95, but in gaming only about 68-70 tops. Which is not that bad for CM 212 if you ask me. And in the summer times like know where it's 25-30C outside it sure makes everything hotter.

Thank you! I think I'll go with your same setup, I think I'll get good temps since I don't run any CF yet and I still haven't OC'd my I7.

I don't like much to have a huge difference between intake vs exhaust, but I hope my 200 mm Bitfenix front fan would get to move more air than the stock one.

Thanks again.
